Oral Histories by LGBT Latino Immigrants / Testimonios de Inmigrantes Latinos LGBT


By Julián Delgado Lopera

Aunt Lute Books is excited to announce the New Edition of Julián Delgado Lopera’s book, ¡Cuéntamelo! Oral Histories by LGBT Latino Immigrants. ¡Cuéntamelo! began as a cover story for SF Weekly, and, eventually in 2014 with local grant support, Lopera was able to self publish. The first edition of 300 books sold out within a week. This year, we’re pleased to bring this title back into circulation. In addition to beautiful black and white drawings of the contributors by artist Laura Cerón Melo, this edition will feature a number of candid earlier photographs of several of the contributors, as well as a new introduction from Julián.


¡Cuéntamelo! is “[a] stunning collection of bilingual oral histories and illustrations by LGBT Latinx immigrants who arrived in the U.S. during the 80s and 90s. Stories of repression in underground Havana in the 60s; coming out trans in Catholic Puerto Rico in the 80s; Scarface, female impersonators, Miami and the 'boat people'; San Francisco’s underground Latinx scene during the 90s and more.”

¡Cuéntamelo! is bilingual. All stories in this book have both an English and Spanish version.
